Rarely, If Even

I don't understand vests. Or waistcoats. Always had a some sort of dilemma regarding this piece of sleeveless garment. You see, in winter is difficult to impossible to wear it instead of a proper coat because it's too cold. And if the vest is made from a thick material you can't wear it underneath the coat either. What's the point if you're back is warm if your hands are freezing? I blame weather.

So let's just assume we are talking about a thinner vest, the kind similar to the mens' waiscoats. That's better. I even own something like that, in a deep green shade which I actually wore several times. Go figure. With a proper blouse, with bows if possible, it does make a rather nice look. Oh, and now that I got to that, I also remember having a fancy pin to close it because it didn't have any buttons. Maybe I should dig that out of the closet and wear it again. Until then, the photo above might just make me reconsider the entire opinion on the vest issue. I-D October 2008, Model: Erin Wasson. Wait...yes, Alexander Wang waistcoat... that must be why. Had to post this one also, too good not to:

  1. My mom was taking old suit vests from my father, customizing them (adding some kind of thin metallic chains for the closure) and wearing them with very feminine silk dresses. I should try to find one of this vests...
